Here, There, And Everwhere hardbound book signed by Geoff Emerick and Howard Massey
Geoffrey Emerick is an English recording studio audio engineer, who is best known for his work with the Beatles on their albums Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles and Abbey Road.
The first album Emerick worked on with the Beatles as their main recording engineer under Martin was Revolver, and "Tomorrow Never Knows" was the first track he worked on. It was Emerick's innovation to record John Lennon's vocal through a Leslie speaker on that song, to get the ethereal sound Lennon wanted. In 1967, Emerick engineered "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!", one of the most musically complex songs on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Lennon told Martin he wanted to re-create the "carnival atmosphere" of the Pablo Fanque circus poster that inspired the song. For the middle eight bars, Emerick spliced together multiple recordings of fairground organs and calliope in an attempt to create the effect; after a great deal of unsuccessful experimentation, Martin instructed Emerick to chop the tape into pieces with scissors, throw them up in the air, and re-assemble them at random.
tensions and arguments that hampered the sessions. He returned to work with the Beatles on Abbey Road.
Emerick received Grammy Awards for the engineering of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road.
Despite his departure from the "White Album" sessions, Emerick remained on good terms with the Beatles, particularly Paul McCartney, who invited Emerick to quit EMI and come and work for their company, Apple Corps Ltd., in 1969. In addition to engineering duties, Emerick would oversee the building of the Apple recording studio.
